AFRC helps patrons with job search

When servicemembers and their families need financial assistance, chances are the Airman and Family Readiness Center are one of the first places that come to mind. However, that's only one of the many services the AFRC provides. 

The AFRC also helps people get jobs. Take, for instance, the story of Sonja Morgan, a military spouse, who went to the AFRC for job assistance months ago and began her supervisory job at the Magdellan Inn this week. 

Morgan sought the help of the AFRC from the very beginning of her job hunt to get assistance and guidance. Two months later, Morgan now has a steady job. 

The AFRC helped her by providing guidance, encouragement, reference websites and sent of Morgan's resumes to different institutions, she said.

"The fact that Sonja already has a job is exceptional [since] jobs on base are limited and extremely competitive," said Bill Cundiff, the community readiness consultant at the AFRC. "Getting a job on Guam is a lot different than in the states, which sometimes makes it harder to get in the door here on Guam."

Morgan submitted 15 to 20 applications to other institutions but made it a point to always remain positive.

"If you are positive, it will give you the personal motivation you need in the event of a setback," she said. "Anyone can get a job, but it's those who are positive that end up getting one."

According to Morgan, always being professional in appearance, whether asking about a job, dropping off an application for a job or going to an interview helps give the impression that you are always professional.

Morgan said not to feel bad if you don't find success right away.

"Don't get discouraged. You have a support network that offers encouragement," said Morgan. "The AFRC is a great example of this. Always use your resources."
